Application period opens for STEM scholarships

March 2, 2012

The Minnesota High Tech Foundation (MHTF) is once again awarding scholarships to Minnesota undergraduate students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disiciplines. These awards include $5,000 and $10,000 awards and can include internship opportunities at MHTA member companies.

The $5,000 scholarships are supported entirely by MHTF. These awards are presented each year during the Minnesota Tekne Awards in November. The $10,000 scholarships are sponsored by Minnesota technology companies and will be paid in equal dividends as part of a multi-year program. Students receiving the $10,000 scholarships will be recognized during MHTA’s annual Spring Conference.

Applications are reviewed by members of the MHTF Board of Directors. These individuals represent Minnesota companies and higher education institutions and are committed to developing a well-educated technology literate workforce. MHTF supports diversity in this application and award process.
